This report describes the results of the Excess Rainfall model (XSR 2.0) on CCRIF member country the Turks and Caicos Islands. Other reports have been or will be issued regarding other CCRIF member countries that have Excess Rainfall policies.

The Turks and Caicos Islands was affected by locally intense rainfall mainly between 1515UTC on 7 September and 0915UTC on 8 September. The Rainfall Index Loss was calculated for this Covered Area Rainfall Event (CARE) that started on 7 September and ended on 9 September 2017, and it indicated government losses for the Turks and Caicos Islands above the attachment point of the country’s Excess Rainfall policy. Final calculations show that a payout of US$1,232,768.60 is due.
